Report: Peyton Manning to become minority owner of Memphis Grizzlies
According to Chris Vernon of ESPN radio in Memphis, Manning has agreed to become a minority owner of the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies.
According to Vernon, other members of the Grizzlies ownership includes Penny Hardaway and Justin Timberlake.
We always wondered why Peyton was so noticeably quiet during last year's NFL lockout; we'll still buy Mike Freeman's assertion that Manning kept mum to protect his own brand. But could part of the reasoning have been that Peyton saw himself as a future franchise owner, in the NFL or elsewhere?
